Transfer to YC

Get Started with our Transfer Student Checklist

YC is a great place to continue your education. If you have previous college coursework, send your official transcripts from your previous college directly to the Yavapai College Registrar. Official transcripts will be evaluated to determine how much credit will be granted for transfer courses toward satisfying Yavapai College degree and certificate requirements. Students should meet with an academic advisor to achieve maximum benefit when establishing an academic plan.

NOTE Yavapai College accepts credits from regionally accredited institutions. Only courses 100-level or above with a grade of "C" or better will be considered for transfer credit and will be evaluated based on course descriptions and learning outcomes.

Transfer from YC to a University

Get Started with our Guide to a Successful University Transfer

We have partnerships with several universities to help students make a smooth transition into their bachelor's degree. YC students receive dedicated advisement to help with academic planning and preparation for transfer. As students meet with their advisor throughout their journey, they receive tips and resources to make a successful transfer.

Start at YC in High School (Early College students)

Get Started with our Early College team

Yavapai College offers courses for college credit at high schools throughout Yavapai County. Our early college advisors help students plan their path for continuing into a bachelor's degree and work with students in understanding important differences between the Freshman and Transfer designation when applying for admissions and scholarships.

NOTE: A Freshman is a student with fewer than 12 college credits earned after completing high school or GED; college credits earned before high school graduation or GED do not affect freshman status. A transfer student has 12 or more college credits earned after completing high school.

Finish your YC Program (Reverse Transfer)

Get Started with our Advising team

Students who transfer to a university without completing their associate's degree are given the opportunity to combine community college and university credits to determine if missing associate degree requirements have been met. Connect with our advising team to see if this might work for you.
